Eclipse is quite an amazing and fun game, but all those tokens & cubes on the player boards are slightly insane. They require cautious players and are a drama for the clumsy ones. It’s easy to accidentely bump the table too hard, drop something right in the middle of all the cubes or other scenarios… like cats. Cats would be able to practically destroy a game of Eclipse if you don’t remember what cubes you’ve taken from your player board, into the game.

During a game of Eclipse you also get to know how tidy people are. The way the cubes are arranged on a playerboard is a fascinating source of information. Some people simply don’t care and just place them roughly on the printed squares and other try to place them as neatly as possible. I belong to the latter group, sorry. ๐Ÿ˜€

To give you an impression of the actualย game board (it gets build up from loose tiles during the game):

What kind of player are you? The organized (slightly OCD) type or the ‘don’t really care as long if everything is sort of in place’ -type?

I’m rather organized player. That’s why I plan to buy some cube trays in the future ๐Ÿ™‚ I can’t decide which one I would like: micro ones (only for population cubes), small (for cubes and disks) or large ones – for whole player boards. Large ones would be great, but they cost 10 euros per piece ๐Ÿ™
